Fifty six issues were published by First Comics in its initial run from 1983-1988. Curiously, the comic book was cancelled just as ABC launched a prime time TV show adaptation of it that was titled simply, "Sable." But boy was the TV show terrible. The show's minimalist production values gave it the "cheap" look of a soap opera. Only 7 episodes were ever aired before it was pulled. It pretty much tells you all you need to know about the show that its producers added a new character: a heavy-set computer expert nicknamed "Cheesecake," as Jon Sable's sidekick.
The 1 minute intro to the show is embedded below. My "favorite" part of it is when Sable leaps over the building's ledge to absolutely no dramatic effect. That's exactly what I felt like doing, too, after I suffered through the first episode back in 1987. If you watch this intro, you may be amazed to learn that this was actually the second version of the show that was shot. An entire pilot episode was filmed with Gene Simmons (yes, the Gene Simmons of KISS fame) playing Jon Sable that was never aired. It makes you wonder how impossibly risible that version must have been if this second version was deemed a big enough improvement to be added to ABC's prime time line-up.
